Revenue tax filing website suspended
The Inland Revenue has suspended its online tax filing system 'as a matter of security', following a possible security problem.
Its self-assessment service has been suspended over ‘the last day or so’,after users reported seeing information from other taxpayers, according to a Revenue spokesperson.
The online service is expected to remain unavailable until technical staff have completed an investigation. It has been dogged by controversy since launching, and users have criticised it for being too complicated.
Self Assessment Online was used by approximately 75,000 people last year.
ACCA head of tax, Chas Roy-Chowdhury, said: ‘Just when you think the Revenue can do nothing else wrong, they manage to innovate.’
